    great book for catholic teens wanting to know more about their religion

    i never heard of this book or author until my priest gave me the book to read. at that time i was just coming in to the catholic religion and i did not know much about the church. this book helped give me more of an understanding of the catholic church.it answered most or all of the questions i did not get answered in my all adult RCIA classes. i would recomend any of the books written by this author.
